Elective, Non-urgent and Non-emergency Procedures Resume

Memorial Healthcare System and Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital are committed to placing the safety and well-being of our patients, staff, and physicians first.

Given the slowly improving data regarding Emergency Room visits, COVID-19 admissions to our facilities, and community statistics in Broward County, Memorial Healthcare System has resumed elective procedures for ambulatory, outpatient and those not requiring extensive stay or Intensive Care Unit care. Please contact your physician's office for more details on scheduling an appointment.

Starting Monday, July 13, all Memorial Physician Group adult specialties will continue to offer appointments for telehealth and telephone visits. In-person office visits are on a case by case basis until further notice.

We appreciate your patience during this time of uncertainty. One thing that is certain is Memorial’s commitment to keeping its community safe and healthy.
